    Ahhhh the return of the good old days!

    Did you ever see a movie "Pirates of Silicon Valley"?

    Want one company does and is considered cutting edge/cool, another will steal/copy!

    Where did the idea of a GUI come from I wonder?

    Reminds me the 15K$'s Surface, a technology they bought just to say, "you see Apple is not alone in the multitouch market".

    Innovation is a concept that doesn't exist in Microsoft's road roller policy, only Money talks.

    I had the same attitude at one time, but then having played with my partners iMac, released that Apple products had a lot to offer. Yes I do use MS stuff for certain very high end applications, but I am running then on an Intel Mac and to my surprise they run much, much faster.

    If you get a chance watch the movie I refer to above. It is about a power game between Steve Jobs and Bill Gates - really interesting. Also if you get a chance look at the Apple Get a Mac add series - The truth is not stretched in them and are accurate (I think thats why Bill doesn't really like them)

    You must be kidding

    MS will always be copying Apple. And as far as history goes, they have been doing just that. MS products are way less advanced and useable on the consumer side.

    Thing about WM is that it be can install on many diff phones. While the Apple only has the OS they use on the iphone.

    So someone could come out with a Keyboard phone with WM7 with all the touch crap along with it. Also WM has had keyboards in the software for a long time (one screen keyboards). so thats nothing new. I really think Apple has help the cell phone market and i cant wait to see the Iphone g2 OS. Just hope its not on the 3g iphone or i be piss snice the phone not that old.

    WM7 looks good but i am not going back to WM phone just yet.

    i would never buy an apple mac laptop, i just dont like the interface or design, and before intel the always seemed slow for the money, like sony, i have never bought anything by them for the same reason, their stuff is overpriced IMHO
    i have a microsft mouse and joystick etc, and they all work well

    but im not that happy with windows vista, but xp is good, and easy to understand

    Microsoft did have a success with Office though. In my experience, nothing is comparable to Microsoft Office, and that's why Steve Jobs announced Apple's partnership with Microsoft at the 1997 Macworld to bring Office to the Mac computer...
